Trouble with uploading image

I'm currently working through the 'beginner-build a simple website' project. I've downloaded the project files which include the images but the images won't load into the webpage.

I have the correct file address (or at least think i do) written into the html but nothing appears on teh page.

What simple mistake could I be making?

@Steve - The 2 most common mistakes when images are not showing up are a typo with the file names or using the wrong file path.

So triple check that you are using the exact name of the image files in your HTML, if that doesn't resolve the issue, check the file paths.

Here's a quick primer on file paths that should get you going.

Let us know how you are getting along with this here in this thread.

James, thank you for your help. It was the file path that I messed up. What can I say, it was a VERY rookie mistake. I'll learn from that.

@Steve - You are very welcome.

Using the names & paths are a common mistake even among experienced folks, it's at the top of the list entitled Start with the obvious stuff first.
